Oracle Storage Cloud Service requires authentication when executing operations against your service instance. Authentication is provided to the service instance in the form of an authentication token.
You request an authentication token from the service by sending your user credentials to the service. Authentication tokens are temporary and expire in 30 minutes. This is a session time out and not an idle time out, which means that tokens expire even if they are in use. You must include your current authentication token with every operation against your service instance.
